Build Status

Deploy to Heroku



  • Default wiring for Components connect & disconnect? (@see component/Validate)
  • How to test components that do database transactions? (@see spec/)

^ both of these were caused thanks to inheriting an auto port disconnect when prev process disconnected.

  • Why the first test will timeout, and why they will all timeout sometimes? (Have to use a stupidly high [10 sec] timeout when testing... this was fickle.)
  • How to send array to inPort.pattern in xpress/Router using FlowHub [the order they are dragged] issue425 issue111 issue24
  • Why does not list HEAD and PATCH as valid verbs?
  • Where to do HTTP reqs go after Server is set up (In FlowHub)?
  • Where to set up Routing Server in FlowHub?
  • Why the pool gets destroyed when including the connection now? (module.exports are cached)
  • How to pass data on with no inPort? (loadbang only)
  • Why you can't delete projects from github on FlowHub? (there is an API, but not UI (link))
  • Is # @runtime noflo-nodejs still useful?
  • Why does FlowHub duplicate projects cloned into it appending username before name and give duplicate components for that project? (upload gif of it)
  • Can the Component change icons with the label? Or have access to the label name?
  • Would it be better to have a Connection Component attached to the piping, or get connection in each Component?
  • can FlowHub only pull from Master?

  • change multiple routers to use (FlowHub)~arrayport
  • could pass (req) down one pipeline, no res port (will this reduce reusability of the components atomically? yes, but it focuses code it for this one instance)
  • pass DB connection down the pipe along with req?
  • rename name as type
  • change CRUD not only to better represent what it does in name (between Route and rest of the machines for that Route) but also use boolean inPorts to set the properties being set by components that (currently) extend it. (removed)
  • Response could be one inPort, pass in data about which one it is
  • stricter Tests when truncating afterAll() since we have a limited dataset

  • A lot was learned & used from
